Porsche GB British Racing Legends are celebrated by Porsche Cars GB. Porsche Cars Great Britain have won more times at Le Mans 24 Hours than any of its competitors, making Porsche Racing legends. With an unrivalled 19 wins at the notorious French endurance race, British drivers have played an pivotal role in delivering these historic achievements.
Porsche wanted to celebrate some of these successes and give something back to British racing drivers Richard Attwood, Derek Bell and Nick Tandy. In special honour of their historic wins, they set out to produce a bespoke model with limited availability. The 911 Carrera 4 GTS ‘British Legends Edition’.
The drivers played a huge part in the design and configuration of each of their bespoke models. Inspiration was taken from their winning race cars with colours specifically matching their original liveries and from their own experiences racing at Le Mans. For example, the Alcantara interior trim relating to the ambience of a racing car cockpit. The concept designs were then developed by Porsche Cars GB, together with Porsche Exclusive Manufacture at the company headquarters in Stuttgart, Germany.
We had the pleasure of filming the finished, limited edition cars, alongside the racing legends. Interviewing the drivers about their design choices and what it meant to them, to be celebrated in this way. Each of the drivers reminisced about their Le Mans wins and expressed how honoured they were to have their signatures on the car next to a patriotic union Jack symbol.
